I had no heads up at all when my GV80 arrived. I happened to be driving into the dealership parking lot and spotted my Gold Coast Silver with Prestige Package. I went there to show my wife up front and close the GV80 without any idea mine showed up that morning. The salesperson was too busy with customers and only found out a few hours earlier but didn't have time to call me yet. Long story made short, yours may show up unexpectedly too.
Hopefully it arrives soon. Thanks for the reply man.

Purchasing a new vehicle is always exciting and we want to get the call that it arrived as soon as possible. Best thing is to get back to your daily routine and call your salesperson once a month to touch base and drop a hint or two you've been shopping around at other Genesis dealerships looking to see if your color and option model may be available elsewhere, another words whoever comes up with your color and option choice first gets your money.
Time passes fast, it'll be here before you know it.

Keep us posted!

Planning to order the GV80 with the 2.5L Advanced package, however still considering the color scheme. Originally thinking of the Uyuni White or Savile Silver, with black interior, however now really liking the Goldcoast Silver model. While I presume all are happy with their purchases, regardless of the color chosen, for those who have purchased the Goldcoast exterior.....are you still really happy with the color, especially with winter/dirty driving? No all cars look dirty in winter, however to me, some more so than others.
Secondly, what interior color scheme did you match it with?
Thanks, appreciate any comments.

Welcome @JP from BC!

Have you considered getting paint protection film or ceramic coating done? It can greatly help to keep the paint looking new especially in messy driving conditions.

Welcome to the forum @JP from BC. Personally I think Gold Coast Silver looks best with the obsidian black interior. I'm biased towards darker interiors.

Thanks for the replies. First, GenesisFan, relative to getting paint protection film or ceramic coating, if you mean protection film on the hood, then yes, will request that. Have now on our car and certainly works. Not aware of ceramic coating, perhaps you can clarify what that is. Only know that while I like the matte finishes would not get them as with any noticeable scratch, you either have to like it that way or get the whole car repainted. Friend had a matte finish on his car and as he said, biggest mistake he ever made for an exterior finish. Now Kurt67, agree if we went for the Gold Coast Silver would probably go with the obsidian black interior. Do I presume correctly, you have the Gold Coast Silver vehicle? Is it more sandy in color or have some noticeable silver tones? Saw the GV80 in Uyuni white with black interior and it looked great. Never had a white car before, have silver and like it ....thinking time to change,..but.
Thanks again for your comments.

Kurt67, if you do have the Gold Coast Silver painted exterior, does it look more silver with a hint of gold or more gold with a hint of silver? Thanks,

Just bought GCS yesterday. It looks straight up gold in the sun and leans a bit towards silver when heavy overcast. Color really pops though. Was intent on blue just a month ago but super glad we went w/ CGS.

I have the Gold Coast Silver 3.5TT Prestige with the Dune/Ultramarine Blue. The color is different ever time I look at it. Only once did it appear to be gold. Most of the time it looks more like a sparkly latte color, or silver. But really it's always different depending on the lighting. Some say theirs appears more champagne but mine has not taken on that hue as of yet. Sometimes it's even lavender looking or a light brown. It's so really hard to describe.

Thanks for all the info, so the color seems to vary a far amount....."even lavender looking or light brown"....not so sure of. Anyway, is an interesting color, and may still go that way. Have seen the Uyuni White and it looked pretty nice; have not seen the Savile Silver.....so have Plan B and C. Anyway, if there are any other comments regarding the Goldcoast Silver color, great. Wondering how it shows the dirt, presume more noticeable that silver. Anyway, thanks again for all the comments.

here are some photos...

this one was the only time it looked gold and only across the hood with the way the light was hitting it.

1474


this one it looks more smokey silver with a hint of pink which I refer to as lavender because it’s hard to describe.

1476


this one it looks more silver or champagne I guess But I think of champagne as being lighter than this.

1472


The point is it changes a lot.

Well, some things get simpler with a phone call. Apparently in Canada I cannot get the GV80 in the Goldcoast Silver color, so I cannot even build/order it that way. So, guess we are back to the Uyuni White or Savile Silver.......leaning to the white....their Uyuni White, when clean, does look nice. Have a silver RX350 currently, thinking perhaps it is time for a change.
Anyway, thanks to everyone for responding, particularly those with the Goldcoast model......enjoy.
